Bottle. Pours gold with an off white head. The aroma is floral and grassy with light fruity hints. The flavor has well balanced sweetness with citric and floral hops and a light malt profile. Not bad.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The 2nd most underrated IPA I’ve tried. Almost all the India Pale Ale’s I love are between 6.5-7 %. This is the perfect session beer for me. The most toned down among my favorite IPA’s but unique enough to drink regularly. I sincerely love this beer.

Very hoppy, but has a clean/bitter finish and great color. One of the better IPAs I’ve had.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Very strong hop aroma. Flavor has a big hop bite along with pine. Very rustic. Hops aren’t very well blended so it is real bitter and a bit grainy. Some off flavors include light peach and citrus right at the end. Not a bad beer but not as smooth as it could be.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy dark amber with a good head. The aroma is moderate herbal hops. There’s a bit of orange fruitiness in the middle of the flavor. The lingering bitterness is really more at the level of an APA than an IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a golden copper with a strong white head. Aroma is of faint grain and cut grass (can’t make out the hops here). Light-medium body with a fairly dry taste with up front bitterness which lingers. So, so. Not one of my favorites.
